She is curt, needs improvement in the way she communicates, comes across that she knows everything and don\'t question her.

9 is the best I will give to anyone or any practice. If we stop trying for the highest achievement, then we stop caring, so please except this 9 as my highest rating, but please do not stop reaching for excellence.

Karen Holmes was attentive and skillful without rushing. She was correct in her assessment of my need, attention to a fractured hip, although x-ray and CT scan at Emergency had been negative. Surgery followed after a pre-MRI x-ray showed a fracture. No MRI was done. Karen was right. I would be happy to see her again if the need ever arose.

Karen Holmes is a consummate professional, but additionally she is a delightful person. She is always willing to provide explanation and instruction which is very much appreciated. She also has a wonderful sense of humor and I always feel at ease in her presence. I particularly like her manner with the medical students that she instructs: clear direction given with care and kindness. She is such an asset. I don\'t look forward to having my knees stuck but since it must be done, I feel lucky that she is the practitioner. A real asset to BS&W.
